Pink poll backs Ming

From The Independent and Ming Campbell’s website comes the news that Ming wins amongst readers of PinkNews when polled against Brown and Cameron. From Ming’s site:

Given the choice of Prime Minister between Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Ming Campbell, 40% of those readers surveyed chose Ming. David Cameron and Gordon Brown trailed on 33% and 27% respectively. In the same poll, only 13% of respondents supported Gordon Brown for the Labour leadership.

Asked how they would vote in a general election, 35% said Labour and 27% said Liberal Democrat, with the Conservatives in third on 26%.

  • The reason is obvious. The LibDems is the party for the gays. It’s their comfort zone. They are every where

  • Look at the figures 9th May '07 - 6:04pm

    The Lib Dems can’t even win the gay vote! I can’t stop laughing! And only one point above the Tories too.

  • It's a two-horse race 9th May '07 - 7:34pm

    You fail to mention that the very same poll puts Cameron ahead amongst the under 18s – i.e. tomorrow’s voters.

    The poll, for the over 18s which put Ming ahead, was conducted at 6am outside of the Fire nightclub and everyone was either on Charlie, Tina or K (or all three!)

    That said, Ming was genuinely ahead at the Elephant’s Graveyard, sorry the City of Quebec, and they thought he was a “nice young man”. The poll was conducted shortly before they all nodded off for an afternoon nap at 3pm on Thursday, May 3rd.

  • I’m gay and sure as sh*t not a LibbyDem! I think it’s a slur on the ‘gay community’ to even suggest that the LibbyDems are ‘our’ most popular party! No more of this nonsense- please! If anything, the LDems have done most to damage the ‘gay image’ in the media. Need i raise a certain MP for Winchester…. And i’m sure there was a ‘scandal’ story going around up here in Scotland a few years ago that an MSP and a researcher were caught ‘at it’ on video by security cameras in the Parly. It was all hushed up. We fortuantly did not get a ‘blow by blow’ account. Wouldn’t surprise me if the MSP concerned was one of your lot!

    It’s there a gay bar in Eastbourne? (-D
